Summersalt, Jumeirah Al Naseem

Perched by the ocean at Jumeirah Al Naseem, Summersalt offers diners some of the best views in the city, namely that of the iconic Burj Al Arab. A recent menu overhaul has seen 15 per cent of its culinary offerings become vegetarian and vegan friendly. As such, you’re spoiled for choice. We recommend starting with the Spiced Sweet Potato & Coconut Soup or the earthy Arabesque Bouillabaisse, before moving on to the flavourful Vegetable Biryani for the main course.

Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara, Burj Al Arab

Set in one of the most prestigious locations in the city, Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara is a bucket list venue for any foodie. Pull up a seat by the aquarium, and enjoy the colours and movement of the fish as you peruse the menu. Though predominantly pescatarian, the menu does cater for vegetarians, serving up a mouthwatering combination of Ricotta Dumplings, Mushrooms & Tarragon Broth.

Naya, Jumeirah Beach Hotel

One of the cities most-loved Indian restaurants, Naya is not to be missed. Vegetarians are especially well looked after in this venue, with dedicated starter and main menus that are entirely meat-free. Whilst you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, we suggest sticking to the signature plates – like Chutney Paneer Tikka made with homemade cottage cheese, pickle marinade and tempered tomato chutney or the Malai Kofta which is made of vegetable dumplings with creamy tomato sauce, toasted dry fruits and signature Naya spices – for a truly memorable experience.

Tortuga, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam

Traditional Mexican food is one of life’s great pleasures (#guacamole, right?) and at Tortuga, flavour is served up by the plate load across plenty of vegetarian dishes. Speaking of guac, it’s the perfect dish to start with – plus, it’s made fresh beside your table to add a little theatre to your dining experience. For mains, opt for the veggie burrito, fajita or chimichanga “el paso”.

Alta Badia, Jumeirah Emirates Towers

Located on the 50th floor of Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Alta Badia just opened at the start of September and it’s perfect for your next date night. Take in the vistas whilst sharing (or not) a plate of handmade pasta, delectably crafted from homemade rye flour into ravioli with spinach and ricotta, chanterelle and porcini mushrooms, or Mediterranean vegetables with stracciatella cheese and basil pesto. If you’ve got room, we also recommend the Risotto al Pomodoro e Stracciatella di Buffala.

Scape, Burj Al Arab

Serving up a Californian-fusion inspired menu, Scape’s culinary offerings are bursting with flavour and fresh ingredients. As the weather is cooling down, we suggest opting for a table outdoors so you can fully appreciate your surroundings. When it comes time to order, there are plenty of veggie-friendly items on the menu, including Sweetcorn & Tomatillo Gazpacho, Mushroom Quesadilla, Fried Baby Eggplant with Spicy Soy Glaze & Tofu Espuma, and our personal favourites – Wild Mushroom and Mediterranean Pizzas.

Khaymat Al Bahar, Jumeirah Al Qasr

If there is one cuisine that’s extra veggie-friendly, it’s Lebanese, and at Khaymat Al Bahar, we’re sure it’s the best you’ll find in the city. Located by the pool in Al Qasr and offering up views of the Arabian Gulf, it’s the perfect place to grab a casual dinner with friends. As for what to order? The options are almost endless with everything from Hummus to Baba Ghanouj, Moutabel, Falafel and Spinach Fatayer falling under the vegetarian banner.

Shimmers On The Beach, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam

Much like Lebanese, Greek food offers up a tonne of vegetarian options. At Shimmers On The Beach, you’ll find a classic selection of starters and mains that are guaranteed to have you wanting to order another plate. Try any one of the famous dips – like tzatziki or tyrokafteri – or Saganaki (breaded fried cheese) before moving on to a traditional Gemista (oven-baked tomatoes and capsicum stuffed with rice and herbs) for your main.
